Using Haikus to resonate
Last month as an Interfaith group born from the Elijah Institute Summer School 2020 we looked at Resonance (thoughts below).
The other Sunday our Elijah Interfaith class of 2020 met on Zoom. We were looking at the word ‘Resonance’.
This month Jane one of our number with the encouragement of Murray decided to use Haiku as a creative way to bring it further alive in us.
The formula is 5 syllables then 7 then 5. Jane was very patient as I asked for examples, for it to be counted out, nervous that I did not understand.
Well I was surprised with what came
The bird hooted
Into my ear came the sound
I hooted twit to woo
The beat of the drum
reverberates within me
until I am one
Murray said the word
into my consciousness came
it is the distance
Jane went further and got us to close our eyes and draw, see the featured photo.
It was so much fun I was energised at the end.
